Neal has three siblings, Eliot Neal, Betsy Neal and his brother, Willie Neal, who died tragically at age 19 in a roller ski accident. His family later established the Willie Neal Environmental Awareness Fund in his honor.

“Willie brought a lot of joy, inspiration and passion to this world and showed us all how to be better people,” Mary Neal, his mother, said after his death. “In this next chapter, we hope our pain will ease to the point that our memories of Willie will bring nothing but joy and continue to motivate us to make a difference in this world every day.”

His mother is also the author of two books, To Heaven and Back: A Doctor’s Extraordinary Account of His Death, Heaven, Angels, and Living Again: A True Story and 7 Lessons From Heaven: How Dying Taught Me to Live a Joyful Life, both about a near-death kayaking accident.

“What a wild, wild journey it’s been,” he wrote in November 2016 of his work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. “This team kicked ass and took names (and money) like no other in history, and to have played a small part in it was a serious honor. I spent just about every waking minute with these people over the past 6 months, and to see this work finished today is surreal. There were days I thought I wouldn’t survive and days I didn’t want to finish, and I blame them. I’m grateful. I learned so much from these people and no matter what happens tonight, all of those lessons will endure.”

After Clinton lost the election, Neal took to Instagram again. This time, he shared a photo of a “Never Never Give Up” sign on Hillary’s desk. He wrote: “Nothing comes easy, and no one understands that better than Hillary Clinton. I noticed this sitting on her desk today, and the message couldn’t be more apt, or more appropriate for the woman he’s sitting on. She’s set the bar for what it means to be a public servant, and it’s time for all of us to take notes, buckle up, and do the same. is what she remembers daily should give us all hope and inspiration.
